Kiki isn't even here yet and won't be for a long time, but she already has a box for her stuff. We have a lot of doggie things already due to big sister, but we need some new things for her. I want to wait buying her her harness/collar and the more expensive things (bag for travelling by plane, car box, ect.).
I want to buy as much stuff as possible at the different shelter events here in our area. They have those flea markets every time and the things they sell were donated to them, so I can justify all my purchases as donations. A win-win situation. Yesterday the was a summer festival at one and I got Kiki is leash and one thing one the must-have list - a muzzle. For travelling it is required for example in Austria to have on with you or in Croatia on the ferry. I have never seen a dog wearing one, but we have it in case it is needed. The leash is red with hearts on it, cheesy as hell. Knowing her character, she would hate me if she knew what kind of leash that is. 🤣
Also today a cool-mat for big sister is arriving in the mail and a rucksack thing to carry dogs in for Kiki. I wanted to have a cheap option already available for visits. We won't used it a lot later, but she needs to know it and for example at our graveyards no dogs are allowed. If I put her in that I can carry her like that, that should be okay. Or it depends on the IKEA, but some allow dogs in carriers inside. Or even if we go on hikes for several hours she can be carried for a while.
I really have to stop myself from buying her things.
